What is the life expectancy of my accumulator?Last Updated: July 03, 2019
The life expectancy of an accumulator is dependent upon many factors such as the number of cycles, temperature and pressure ratio. A bladder or piston style accumulator can be kept in use for 10-20 years so long as proper routine maintenance occurs (i.e. occasionally replacing the bladder or seals and checking precharge pressure). HYDAC offers bladder and seal repair kits which are readily available in most sizes.
